The JR-Maglev MLX01

The fastest trains in the world are in Yamanshi Prefecture in Japan.  There they have a demo line of test trains known as JR-Maglev MLX01.  This line of trains has reached a speed of up to 581 km/h or 367 mph.  This is just a bit quicker than the fastest wheeled train which has only hit 357 mph.  The JR-Maglev MLX01 trains utilize superconducting magnets which experts say “allow for a larger gap” as well as “repulsive-type electrodynamic suspension” or EDS.  Known in Japan as “Superconducting Maglev Shinkansen”, they were built by Kawasaki Heavy Industries and the Central Japan Railway Company and can reach records speeds of 581 km/h.
